New drama next year with Nagano Mei.
Oh my.....Kuro-chan got rejected by Ran and being judged by viewers, LIVE.
>>20491812lel he is so screwed.
>>20491833Now he has to live in an animal cage for 23 hours while being fed by visitors. topkek
>>20491849Almost 3 million viewers, and even more for those who not vote.They blown the fuck BPO so hard this time.
Rewatched Snow on the Blades, and god damn it is good.
>>20491937Holy fucking shit, check the fucking crowdhttps://twitter.com/chaipeco_1022/status/1077966819510505472https://twitter.com/Twitube_123/status/1077960959698718722Someone has collapsed and apparently they had to cancel it (temporarily?), they freed Kurochan.https://twitter.com/yotchman/status/1077962277658095617But damn, this really had attracted the scum and their crude language, I hope Kurochan is okay.https://twitter.com/Bns3PbGdPCR0RVC/status/1077991281786142721
>>20490626Is this like one of two potentially good dramas this coming season? The plot seems interesting, slightly reminds me of the novel Kokuhaku by Minato Kanae, but the focus on young actors/actresses in this drama is putting me off. Although 3 cuties I like are starring in it, so I dunno.>>20492888This was hilarious, I regret not watching it from the start, but thankfully they aired a Christmas SP last night which summarized the whole thing.
>>20492888I wonder if they got police permission for it. Last night show was so brutal.
>>20492888>Someone has collapsed and apparently they had to cancel it (temporarily?), they freed Kurochan.>https://twitter.com/yotchman/status/1077962277658095617>But damn, this really had attracted the scum and their crude language, I hope Kurochan is okay.>https://twitter.com/Bns3PbGdPCR0RVC/status/1077991281786142721They didn't really think it through. But they probably really don't have enough budget to build a strong temporary cage and set up better security. The budget was all spent on MH production, I think.
You know it's been a good episode when it's plastered all over the news the following morning.
We regret to inform you that Kuro-chan survived the ordeal.https://twitter.com/kurochan96wawa/status/1078125076103323648
>>20493956Writer is the same as Densha Otoko and Kazoku Game. I assume it would be at least be decent. And I am watching it because of Nagano Mei.
This is like discount Linda Linda Linda with a little more romance. Really comfy.
I've been seeing Shopliters get mainstream praise even from Western outlets, is it legitimately good or just something that's been hyped to high heaven?
>>20498717yeah it is goodnot my favourite from koreeda but still good nonetheless and one of his better filmsin terms of it being overhyped, idk i don't really pay attention to that kind of stuff but as far as mainstream films go it's definitely worth watching, i doubt you'd be disappointing by it
I kinda predicted this would happen. Surprised though with the Minami Hamabe cameo. Was she ever in a Fukuda show?
Any plebs need some desperate help with their Avistaz ratio? Reply with your username and I'll send you some bonus points. Be sure you're at least trying to seed.
I am new to Japanese movies but I recently watched All About Lily Chou-Chou and liked it quite a bit, can someone recommend similar movies?
Nobu bought a $100,000 Mercedes in the latest Terebi Chidori.
Oh God it’s the year end and the new year season, tons of SP variety shows are/will be airing until the end of January. What are you guys watching?
>>20503591Gaki Batsu Game Speicial and Yoiko's Deserted Island Special happen to be on the same day this year.At least there will be some gaijins live-subbing Gaki.
>>20503591Gaki, Geinojin Ranking Check, and that manzai show about Downtown team vs Shimura Ken's team.Pretty much Downtown related shows.
>>20503591Gaki no Tsukai Batsu GameGeinoujin Kakuzuke CheckDream Tozai Neta GassenMight watch the Sekiguchi Hiroshi's Tokyo Friend Pack SPI sometimes watch whatever SP is airing during new year season when I have nothing to do. >>20506815Are you me?

Anyone is watching 爆笑！さんまのご長寿グランプリ too?
>>20512673>that main villainKek
So what were the dramas shows you anons liked from this year? For me these wereKyou Kara Ore WaHana Nochi HareOssan's Love Takane no HanaUnnaturalTodome no Kiss
>>20516600I only watch 1 drama per season, so that means 4 dramas in the year.I watched:>anone>The Confidence Man JP>dele>Legal VI liked them all, but Legal V was the most entertaining of the four, followed by dele, TCMJP and anone.
>>20500834Thank you for recommending, amazing movies
i feel like i was being bombarded with propaganda from this show
>>20517536The Confidence Man JP was very fun, can't wait for the movie.
>>20505491Are you moot?
>>20517536Nice list. I have all these saved in my HD and been meaning to watch them all throughout next year.
>>20491937>>20491812tldr for this guy?
any good movies about period of economy bubble burst?
>>20518199No problem. Tokyo Sonata and Himizu are also similar.
Anyone watch the God Tongue special?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mrYbxKd6XXQ
I liked the film. But what was the point of the whole story? Is this supposed to be a slice of life featuring murderers?
As expected, YOSHIKI and Gackt are something else. I was rooting for the cutie Keyakichantachi, but they fucked up after a nice little streak.
>>20516600UnnaturalMiss SherlockDeleEerie Meinai Kao
this is weirdly the 2nd time I've seen MtH referenced in a row, I watched the Beck LA film right before this. anyway it's a pretty good show (11 nin mo iru), way too melodramatic at points but the humour makes the cringe bearable.
Took about half a day to get Yoiko's 6-and-a-half Hours Special. Gonna see Mad Man Nasu D literally jumping a shark.
I feel like I see this actress everywhere but absolutely cannot figure out who she is. Does anybody know her name at least?
>>20544237Tanaka had the piss taken out of him a bit because of this in this year's batsu, and Suiyoubi no Downtown has ripped it off before, but does anyone know if the show itself is actually entertaining? The youtube link's already dead.
Watched Manbikikazoku the other day.Unfortunately dubbed, but I guess they felt like they had to do it, because that's what the German cinema audience sadly expects.Highly interesting movie, but I'm not sure what the message was supposed to be.
Where do you find these NYE SPs?
>>20490626Will probably watch this one.
>>20490626The reasons I'm watching this drama.
Damn this movie was great.Koike was one of the best female villains I've ever seen.
Just watched this
>>20568671/m/ is for discussion of toku
Is it ok to talk about tokusatsu here, or there is another board or thread for it?
>>20568223How does it compare to the Chinese Initial D flicks?
>>20568223Right, I have to watch it for Macken
>>20568695I wouldn't mind if we talked about the films though. For example, Shin Godzilla was really good. And the KR heisei films were campy and fun.
>>20565187Kawaei plays there? Now you got me interested.
>>20568978Haven't watched Chinese initial d flicks but this movie was well made. It is rally racing so it was on enitrely different level than initial D. Something like redline's realistic version (race wise). Also it focused more on characters than actual races so it is kind of mature writing.Also main girl gets shot in America
>>20568223I watched it too. It's more of a drama than a racing film. They couldve at least show a full race sequence, but the racing parts were cool though. Morikawa's role was just there so the MCs have someone to dialogue with. What was the point of him being this fit though? His rival was your typical skinny ikemen. They were just driving cars...
Netflix has some comfy old stuff like a few seasons of Knight Scoop from 2010, I wish Hulu never existed over there so more old variety shows would be easier to get.Everything having JP subs is pretty nice too, it makes such a change from the usual chink uploads that never bother with a fucking 10kb file because they're too lazy to retime it when they cut out the ad breaks. It's just a shame it's such a hassle to access all this stuff because nips seem to think there are no external markets, a lot of region locking seems to be purely to spite the Chinese.
>>20574024>a lot of region locking seems to be purely to spite the Chinese.Maybe that will change once China starts to attempt to pull some "Cool China" shit, and Japan doesn't want to lose out.Seriously, it's fucking retarded there is no legal way to access even NHK broadcasts from overseas without paying out of your ass, and even then it's ridiculously limited.Public broadcasters in other countries region-lock shit as well, but usually only content with region-restricted licensing like sports.Look at the US. PBS shows are largely on fucking YouTube for the whole world to watch. That has really improved my opinion of the country. It's a shame about what has happened to InfiniteSeries, though.
Japanese thigh gaps should be illegal.
Horror movie recommendations?
This seems good.
>>20550267is it worth a watch?Judging from the cover it looks like they had a budget of 100 yen
>>20577955Seems like dumb fun so far, it's the first drama I've picked up in a while just because of the absurd premise. >>20576955Can you not read? It's Knight Scoop, the episode that aired on Dec 03 2010. If you're expecting more than that one shot you'll be disappointed, TamuKen has her change to a racing swimsuit right after.
Kodoku no Gourmethttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcJU5qQCU8I
>>20578833it's an indie film that became one of Japan's top blockbuster films this year due to word of mouth. Personally I loved it. >>20578838Daily life of high school boys: Live Action
>>20578833The first 20mins was shit then you find out why it was shit and it's great.
>>20579348Sounds like Haruhi S1.
>>20577955Liked the first episode. I wonder how they stretch this to 10 episodes.>>20579082I dropped this years ago because I wasn't fond of sad dramas back then. Maybe I'll try to rewatch it.
>>20579758>I wonder how they stretch this to 10 episodes.Given the police already gave up when they were, what, 20 feet away because of a single victim, seems like it'd be pretty easy. It's also impressive that none of the 5 kids holding him down considered maybe restraining his arms, or just taking his watch off.
>>20579807The explosion also achieved nothing.This is why you make your students swallow bombs or give them explosive necklaces or whatever.
>>20572270that must have been awkward to act out
>>20579807>>20580158That "bomb" too was laughable. Also why didn't any student use a phone immediately to call for help?
>>20584028>Also why didn't any student use a phone immediately to call for help?dunno
>>20584028They went to their mobiles pretty quickly I thought—right after they were sitting down again after looking at the damage the bomb caused.The idea is that even if help came they wouldn't be able to do anything which is itself unbelievable. I guess I'll just suspend by disbelief and enjoy the ride though.Unrelated but I was quite surprised the broadcasting regulators were okay with a teacher straight up stabbing his student in the heart.Also I liked how the idea that bullying was the cause of the suicide has already been ruled out episode 1. I've no idea where they're going to take the story.
>>20584477>I guess I'll just suspend by disbelief and enjoy the ride though.I'm going to do this unless the story becomes so unrealistic for a "serious" drama. So far the story interests me.
what the fuck is wrong with nassu-d's head?he ate alive octopus and fish wtf
i wish movies and tv shows would stop thishttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ten_percent_of_the_brain_myth
>>20585879He is living life to the full.Also he doesn't care about the well-being of sea creatures.
>>20590954For a moment I thought that was a blood stain on her shirt.
>>20579082i hate yamapi because he act like a faggot but he ages gracefully
Help! Where can I stream Sukatto Japan?
Finishing a 1 month trip in Japan, and I love it more than ever. Looking for some shows or movies that depict various lifestyles. Loved Little Forest and wouldn't mind something like that again.
Ugh, browsing this thread during the start of the new season dramas is painful, too many spoilers.The year's first Suiyoubi was fun. I'm glad they picked Kazumin's suggestion.Next week they will fuck with my man Ogawa. Can't wait.
>>20594627Also they officially apologized for the absolute disaster that was Kurochan's punishment event last December.
>>20594627>Ugh, browsing this thread during the start of the new season dramas is painful, too many spoilers.Sorry, I will remember to use the spoiler tag on currently airing drama.
I watched the family game, good film, funny & weird, good coming-of-age story. reminded me of tampopo a little bit.i think i will make a grid, because the directing by yoshimitsu morita was stunning
>>20597352done.it's definitely worth watching if you have the time
>>20594627This guy fucking died.
>>20566710Unironically my favourite movie.
what are some shows about time travel or alternate realities? originals, not adaptions of anime/manga/light novels
>>20598986安堂ロイド〜A.I. knows LOVE?〜
>>20598986Todome no KissJinSamurai Sensei
>>20601211I want to marry Kazumin
>>20599105All of these are adaptations
Has anyone watched the new taiga drama?It doesn't look like it's been uploaded online anywhere.
What do you guys think of her career so far? She's getting more and more roles lately.
>>20607931What's it this time? The first and last one I watched was Sanadamaru.
>>20608794she's cute in all her movie appearances, and her role in KKOW was really fun to watch. This comfy movie was great. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tYCLVtFnPAU
>>20609260I've always known her as the once in a 1000 years idol but I saw her when I watched the Saiki K. live-action so I looked her up. Trying to watch 'Kyo kara Ore' wa right now since it's pretty recent and it's the one she's tweeting out the most.Thanks for the rec anon. I'll try to watch it.
shes doing too many food shows.
>>20608851It's about the Olympics from the early 20th century till the 1964 Tokyo Olympics.Apparently it will be the 2nd ever post-war taiga drama. It's to celebrate 2020 of course.
>>20608794>>20610647she is good

can anyone attempt to explain All About Lily Chou Chou to me?i'm not exactly surely what this movie was supposed to provoke.
New drama next week. Same writer as Housekeeper Mita, GTO, Queen of the Classroom, Overprotected Kahoko, et al.
>>20616834No but here's this page.https://fauux.neocities.org/lily/apple.html
AQ Stream is down.
>>20621498Hana a cute
>>20625502Best character and best actor in the show. The lead was laughably bad.
Is the Thermae Romae RL movie worth it?I only faintly remember the anime, but I think I enjoyed it.
>>20627676The anime was definitely the better adaptation but the movies were fine too.
Oh, I thought Gaki forgot to do the Top 10 of 2018. Here we go today.I already forgot Hosei did a short movie last year.
>>20628048Piccadilly Umeda is still alive.
>>20628139New Kiki series next week!
>>20629602What's the name of this show?
>>20629995It's written there, ドッキリGP.
What's the consensus on The Many Faces of Ito?Two episodes in and I like it so far. It's helping me figure out the grammar a little bit more. Plus Rio is gorgeous.
>No one has picked for 3 nen A gumi yetThat's weird considering the cast.
>>20629589I would rather see him on a family drama or a romcom again. Sorry Youth! was really good.
Watch season 2 now GO!!!
>>20639432I kinda don't wanna. I didn't even watch the SP.The drama was fine, only remember tiny bits, if none, but I believe I laughed a lot when I watched it. Does it deserve a second season though? I'm not sure.I wanna watch 3 nen A gumi, but if it no one is going to sub it, might as well catch up with the SP and watch season two.

There was this kino I saw once. It was in japanese. This highschool girl is being raped by her stepdad. And her mom doesn't believe her or blames her for it. And then there's this homeless kid. And he starts hanging out with the girl. And they plan to runaway together. But the kid gets beat up by some guys the day before so he never ends up making it to their meeting. Anyone know it? Alternatively, any movies with bullying and rape are appreciated

Does anyone happen to know anyone with a TV capture card in Japan? I want to get some episodes of Iwagou Mitsuaki's Cat Travelogue. I tried buying an episode off NHK on Demand with a VPN, but it doesn't like my card because my name has an apostrophe in it. There are a handful of episodes that haven't been ripped yet.http://www4.nhk.or.jp/nekoaruki/7/
>>20641722Try requesting it on JPTVTS, there are a couple people who record stuff. It's a private tracker but very easy to get into via the D-Addicts forum.
>>20642785Thanks, that sounds like a good lead. I also do intend on buying the official BDs and uploading those to ADC (and JPTVTS if they accept BDMVs).
>>20490626>still no ep 2
>>20642785I managed to get in. Do you know who or where I should request the rips from? Both the Variety forum and the Uploaders forum seem pretty dead.
>>20644664Nevermind, I think I got it covered. Thanks anon. Is this a new tracker? It's at fewer than 400 members.
>>20643653I wish there is subs, watching a good drama like this raw is painful.
What are some good or fun movies from the last 5~ years?
>>20496868>Nagano MeiAnyone else feels kind of depressed when an actress is TOO cute? Especially when she's younger than you. Makes me think of what I have missed and that I'll never have someone even close to that cute by my side. Luckily not many actresses trigger this feeling to a great extent.
>>20645176Why Don't You Play in Hell? was pretty fun
>>20641067>>20643099That's it. Thanks senpai!
Do you enjoy japanese movies or tv series more? Why?
>>20645204Get laid, my man.
>>20644664>>20644835Just ask in the chat if you haven't already, that's what most people seem to do for requests. It really is a niche tracker and I think that there's only a few people who can invite new members. It's a nice place to get currently airing series/specials but it's obviously not great for older stuff.
>>20645176I found Tori Girl and Teiichi no Kuni very funny.
>>20645176Weren't Onigokko and Kami-sama no Iu Toori fairly received?
>>20644931I had trouble with some parts too, but the story was really easy to follow in a general sense. I'll rewatch some scenes when subs are out.
>>20645204Yes except the younger part as I generally prefer women who are slightly older than me.
Why is it that music video directors are able to properly capture good film aesthetics but actual contemporary movies are so mediocre I japan
>>20649865All the good directors are in anime.
>>20597352wow jun togawa's in this. i'll have to watch it
I use this movie to go to sleepp, too comfyhttps://youtu.be/tK0xPlTZVVI
Literal newfag here, what are some good comedy jp shows or films that can make me roll on floor laughing out loud?
>>20653935Black President, the Hero Yoshihiko, Kekkon Dekinai Otoko
>>20653935Mr Nietzsche at the convenience store. I have no idea what you find funny though.
>>20654193Tried yoshihiko and i like it. It's doesn't make me laugh out loud but it's fun to watch. Thanks for reccs and I'll other ones>>20654229I'm not sure what i find funny, so just recommend what you find to be extremely funny and I'll try it. but usually the comedic works i like seems to have elaborately constructed convoluted stupid funny scenarios.

>>20655391Fuck off, newfag.
Is it a stylistic choice to make this show look as cheap as possible? Everything looks like a set. lmao. The show is still interesting though.
>>20656098I loved Holyland adaptation thats why, alot of nice shots in real tokyo streets, that show and atmosphere it produced was great
>>20656098It doesn't look any more or less cheap than any other recent drama to me.
>>20490626anyone see the asadora with nagano mei? sounds like its shit.
>>20572270Interesting I didn't know there was a dorama for Flowers of Algernon
This season's dramas are the shittiest in years. Not a single drama picked up sounds remotely interesting, and it doesn't help that 2 of them are legal themed, since I just finished watching Legal V last season.Anyone here watched anything from this season? Anything worth watching out there?
>>20656773the one in the OP is also a currently airing drama and looks like it was a made for tv movie. The music is good, the camera work is decent and they use real locations. Looks like all the budget in 3 - A went into paying for the actors in this show.
Are very old films allowed?Recently saw House (aka HAUSU) from 1977 and loved it. Basically it's the happiest, most colorful horror comedy ever, but still with a nice dose of gore and nudity and some very trippy old-school SFX. It's also surprisingly meta at times for a movie made more than 40 years ago.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQ_Yo06kIIAA contemporary pic of the cast, mostly unknowns with no prior experiences.
>>20662423I watched this a long time ago and enjoyed it very much. Kungfu girl is best girl.
Any place where to watch "中学生日記 転校生シリーズ「僕と君のメロディ"? Chūgakusei Nikki Tenkōsei Shirizu episode "Boku to Kimi no Melody" from 2011??
